    Hello there. I would like some advice here. I've got about $80 dollars to spend. Should I
    A: Get two high-quality knock-offs Sunstreaker and Mirage
    B: Get an authentic reissue Omega Supreme
    C: Get the Transformers seasons 1-4 DVD set

    I'd like to make a very wise decision that'll help my collection grow. I tend to blow money willy-nilly but this time, I want to make the best decision possible and I think this poll might help me do that.

    The knock-offs are of the ones I've mentioned in other posts from Chinese ebay seller.

    I really like Sunstreaker and I'm aware that there is no official reissue of him and the original ones are way, way too expensive.

    Since it appears you're wanting help in deciding whether to get toys or the DVD set, shouldn't this be in the TF Toy Discussion instead of the TF General Discussion?

    I wouldn't really mess with buying knock-offs, unless you think they are worth getting over the authentic figures. I don't know about the reissue of Omega Supreme; surely he's got to be worth more than $80, unless you found a retailer that has him for cheap.

    I definitely recommend getting TF seasons 1-4.

    None of those really seem worth $80...

    From the choices I'd be torn between the DVD set and Omega. But if you don't have the DVD set, run with that.

    Thank you guy's. I'll keep this poll open during the weekend. The seller of Omega Supreme replied and said he'd help me out with the difference.
    I am aware of the knock-offs, but as said, it's very hard to find original Sunstreaker and Mirage in mint condition at a reasonable price.

    I think every fan of G1 should own the show at some point.

    My Omega Supreme seller said he'd help me out with the $3 difference. :D 
    So, I might go with that! Thank you!

    I'm pretty sure that means the DVDs...

    TIME VENT: That's odd...I quoted a post that apparently never existed, so I never quoted it...That's weird...You can ignore me now.

    I would either get the Reissue OS or save it for something more expensive such as an MP Grimlock.

    I voted for Omega Supreme, because it will be harder to find him for fair price later on. G1 bootlegs will not go up in price, and they would be easier to buy later on.

    Personally, I'd go with the DVD's out of the options given here.

    Omega Supreme is cool, just because it's Omega Supreme and has some old school 80's charm about it, but it's not really a great toy or anything. It's big and it's G1, so I get the Omega Supreme love that's constantly tossed around here, but I'd rather have the DVD's...

    or RoTF Mindwipe, Bludgeon, Dirge, Brawn, Skystalker, and Brakedown. Which would collectively equal about $80 retail.

    Personally I'd choose something else entirely, but out of your list it would be between Omega Supreme and the DVDs.
